The Drillers staff loved Driller Man, the oil drop and drill bit from last round. The logos inspired all kind of marketing ideas: “So good, this team must be rigged!” Just one of the many themed slogans we brainstormed in Tulsa.
While we refined (pun intended!) Driller Man, we blew out the emblems in different variations. The team was stoked for D & E, and asked us to merge the two concepts together. The blue flaming drop was a favorite as well, with no changes needed. We all agreed A and F were half baked, so they got the block.
Tulsa has a long history of using T’s on their home cap, and it was important to pay homage to this heritage. Equally important was that we sell the story of the tycoon’s oil drop: Find one drop, and life would change as you know it. We merged a few ideas together an landed on our winning home cap design (H).
